I’ve been following the progress of RocketResponder, and curiosity finally got the best of me and I signed up.
It actually looked quite simple on the inside, so I decided to set up my first list on video and see how easy it actually was.
TimTech is still adding new features, so what you see in this video is not the final word. Just now, they sent out an email saying they would be adding more options for the name token, and also… that they will be processing name tokens from other autoresponders as well, which means no more emails that say “Hi <firstname>”, yay! Because, no matter how careful you are, you are going to mess up sometime.
The opt in form can be adjusted if you know a bit of html. That’s pretty typical with most opt in forms. Knowing TimTech, they will probably add a feature to edit the form easily at some point.
Another awesome feature, which I did not cover in the video, is the ability to automatically send your blog posts to any or all of your lists (campaigns). The setup is easy. Just add the link to your RSS feed. You can also choose for the subject line to be your blog post title, or something else… and you can add comments around the blog post too.
This really is a nice autoresponder! It’s been set up to be easy on your brain, and easy on your pocket.
I would recommend it to anyone who is just starting out.
